What an Absolute Piece of Junk from XFX

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
just received a sealed in the box XFX P1-650X-CAH9 650W power supply.

the supply works but the fan has a loud clicking noise. Upon reading reviews, sure enough there are many customer feedbacks that say the fan is very noisy ... and it is.

There are many other good quality power supplies out there for the same price so be wise and steer clear of this XFX unit unless you plan to use it in an industrial environment - cause it sure is noisy when used at home

regarding recommendations in forums ... again, Buyer beware

It is a known issue which only affects a minority of fans and you got unlucky. The PSU itself is great. You can RMA it and XFX will replace it.

And the moral of the story is read reviews before buying.

I was going to get that PSU before I picked up my Seasonic on super deal from newegg. That is a great PSU btw. I would get another one if you want to give it a shot.

I just wanted to stop by and say that my XFX Black Edition 850w is a great PSU, and XFX is a great company, I've never had a problem with them.

Anyway, RMA it, they shouldn't have a problem with that.

No, don't, as that'll void the warranty. But yeah, only the fan is the issue here.
